Slow and steady. Started out with a downpour, then light rain then just a nice early morning.

I'd never compare our weather to say Texas on any regular basis... but man when we have some stretches of heavy air they are STICKY

72/100%/70 Dew point You can tell storms will be here later in the day but heavy air right now, took all of a 1/8 of a mile to feel wet....

but on the bright side my legs felt decent this morning :) I do not say that much these days so I will take it!

Good morning. About 64 and felt decent after the first few slower miles. I have been actually eating healthy for 3 weeks now and I can tell it makes me feel better. Don't get me wrong, I still enjoy a nice steak ;) . I just have been fruit heavy in the am, lots of fruit smoothies with Whey and fish/meat heavy in the afternoon/pm. It is a type of Paleo diet, not trying to lose weight, just trying to stay injury free and get some miles back under me.

Been a long time since I logged a 20. Since Boston actually. Wow it's hard to believe I have been trying to get back for so long. I have certainly lost some of  my edge that is for sure. All in all, good day to do it -58 at the start of the run, cannot ask for much more really. Glad its in and hope to repeat next week. One bright note is my last few miles were the fastest. Nothing to brag about but nice to know I did not have to drag myself across at the end. 2 deer and actually saw a groundhog attempt to climb a tree....

Getting ready to go to the Greene and go shopping with my soon to be 13 year old.

Finally starting to breath better, hate being sick. Hot and sticky this morning. 72/70/94%

We earned this one. 74/75/96%. WET and just tough conditions to have a long run. Two in the group struggled but I kept them slow and steady. I told them after it won't get any harder than that. For me, that was the 3rd straight 20 mile Saturday. Next week we will back it off. That being said my total mileage is still low. I still want to build up slowly as I am totally coddling my way back. I figure slow is better than not getting any running in. We'll see how the body holds up in 3 weeks as I take them slowly on the 26. They maybe up my training to push a little pace at Indy in Novemeber.
